I'd rate 5/8/77 as the best dew, Saratoga is in my top 5, just heard it for the first time a month ago. Not just CM picked it >> http://gratefuldeadprojects.com/Morning_Dew.html

Yea maybe I was a lil harsh on my response. It actually is a really good dew and seems to possess all of the qualities I think a good dew should possess. Its just a bit sloppy and I'd prefer jerry's solo to be less strumming/chords.

ANd thanks for the link. Very cool.

Its really hard for me to pick a best morning dew. I really prefer 72 style dews overall, bobby is amazing. Though I agree to a point. 5/8 and 5/22 (both equally epic IMO) are the "pinnacle" dews. The are executed essentially, perfect. With 5/8 being a bit more raw and rockin where 5/22 is just... perfect i guess.

I'm gonna take this opportunity to hype my latest favorite and what I would likely put into my top 5 dew bin. Or if i could only have 5...
